In 2009, Croatia issued its Energy Sector Development Strategy, covering the period until 2020. The strategy aims to reduce the country's dependency on imported energy and to diversify energy supplies. The target is to maintain the share of hydropower and renewables in total electricity production at 35 % in 2020, respectively. However, the actual share of renewables in power generation at present greatly exceeds this target.
In accordance with Article 7 of the EU Energy Efficiency Directive, Croatia adopted the third National Energy Efficiency Action Plan in 2014. This requires additional annual savings of 1.5 % of the reference consumption as well as a cumuluative final energy savings target of 1.3 Mtoe over 2014-2020.
